Have you met Yahav Draizin from Tel Aviv, Israel who is skilled in bringing everyday objects to life with a smartphone (no photoshop)? He owns an advertising agency called CRACKER TLV where I work full-time.
He says “I’m constantly looking for inspiration. Using my phone, I match images from popular culture and beyond to places, people, and objects to bring them to life, but with a fun twist. All photos are taken in real locations using two smartphones and no Photoshop or editing.”
Here are some of his impressive work.
Creativity and storytelling is my passion and photography is my hobby since I was a little boy. I love it because it allows me to be creative and explore different angles and different stories with a single shot.
My photos turn ordinary situations into extraordinary, making magic by combining two different things into a whole new story.
The first photo of this concept came to mind when I was near a clock tower in Tel Aviv, Israel and it reminded me of Big Ben in London, England. I tried to combine them and the rest of the photos came from there.
The smartphone is something we all carry all day. It allows me to take these kinds of photos spontaneously on the spot whenever an idea or inspiration comes and without photoshop or editing. I always carry two phones in order to do this.
I use images and characters from popular culture and art that inspired me. In almost any situation I can find a link to those memories and images.
I can’t choose one picture I love the most or that makes me laugh the most, every one of them tells a different story with characters and places I love.
